Wolverine Wednesday: A Grand Slam Hire

When you lose a assistant coach/coordinator in May, its a tough loss.   Spring practice is over, summer conditioning is underway, and game planning and roster alignment is underway.  Finding a top notch coach is not the norm this time of year.  

Steve Clinkscale from UK has been doing a great job recruiting Michigan and stealing recruits from both MSU (mostly) and Michigan.  Both programs have tried to hire him away from the Wildcats and he hasn't moved.  Until, yesterday when he accepted the DB and Passing Coordinator role on Harbaugh's staff.  This is a grand slam hire and one that should have immediate impact as official visits start back up in June. 

We might not be happy with on the field results the last couple of years but Harbaugh is doing a great job of changing things up this off season and brining in the right people, no matter the cost.  

The media and recruits reaction has been mostly been:  "Huge hire for Michigan and huge loss for Kentucky".

Grand Slam and maybe the future DC at Michigan. 

  • DT Transfer Tony Fair does not have Michigan as one of his finalist 
  • DT Transfer Jordan Whittley from Oregon State gets an offer
  • Cam McGrone tore his ACL against Rutgers and was drafted by New England.  He will miss his entire Rookie season.
  • The ugly Dr. Anderson report is now available. 
  • The Michigan Women's Golf Team is currently #2 in the NCAA Finals tournament.
